Who reads Cosmo nowadays? Because I was sincerely hesitant about writing this piece! Cosmopolitan’s Miley Cyrus covers and associated pictorial could really of no interest whatsoever. Except there was something about Miley’s Cosmo I liked.
That’s even harder to say / believe than saying / believing that I would read Cosmo! But I really liked how Rachel Zoe styled her famous client for Matthias Vriens-McGrath’s Cosmo photo session. Something real. Something edgy but real.
Sure she’s daring, sure she’s teasing with her cleavage and platinum blond crop, but if we look deep down inside, at the end of the day Miley is just playing games. Not the Disney type anymore, but still games. She’s at (correct me if I’m wrong) second or third boyfriend to whom she’s also engaged to be married (could be married already as far as we know) and she’s still being labeled as ‘libertine’ or worse.
At the other end of the spectrum, Taylor Swift, whose angelic waves and crystal clear blue eyes keep receiving as many awards as compliments, is at her … who’s counting anymore? she’s changing boyfriends faster than some change socks! Yet, Taylor is a Saint. Taylor is sheer perfection and she’s constantly providing an endless source of inspiration and creativity. Now let me hear you say that Miley is faking? Anyone? Hmm. I thought so!
(oh, and just for the record? her sheer soft blue ensemble from Marc Jacobs? I. love. every. thing. about. it!)
